A number of Bengals are sitting out the first day of training camp. We already new Geno Atkins was going to miss the first day of camp as he continues to rehab from reconstructive ACL surgery, but there were some other unexpected names sitting on the sideline with him.
Wide receiver Marvin Jones, tight end Jermaine Gresham, backup QB AJ McCarron and offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth sat out the first day of camp:

Just eyeballing it, appears Whit hurt calf in conditioning— Geoff Hobson (@GeoffHobsonCin) July 24, 2014
It doesn't appear as though Whitworth is seriously injured:
